Bradford White Buys Steel Tank Manufacturer
Based in Niles, Mich., the new firm manufactures large-volume storage tanks and is able to build tanks up to 11 feet in diameter. It will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Bradford White, and will be brought in line with the company's primary manufacturing operation in Middleville, Mich.
Leonard F. Rzepczynski, a Bradford White vice president and 21-year veteran of the firm, has been appointed general manager of the new subsidiary.
"It is a good first move in our strategic plan to broaden our approach to the wholesale marketplace," said A. Robert Carnevale, President and CEO of Bradford White.
